  • walnuts - 1/5 cup (60 g)
  • figs - 5 - 6, dried
  • dates - 5 - 6
  • orange zest - of 1/2 fruit
  • chocolate - 2 oz (60 g) milk or dark
  • baking powder - 1 packet
  • strawberry syrup - or topping for pouring on
  • Sugar Syrup
  • water - 3 1/5 cups (750 ml)
  • sugar - 1 2/3 cups (400 g)
  • lemon zest - of 1/2 fruit
  • orange zest - of 1/2 fruit

Preparation

Beat the eggs and 3 types of sugar to fluffy cream. Add the butter (melted but not hot) and the milk, continue beating briefly with a mixer.

Sift the flour and baking powder directly into the mixture and stir with a wooden or silicone spoon, then add the semolina. Keep stirring until you obtain a homogeneous mixture (it's a little runny but don't worry, the semolina needs space to swell).

Add in the dried fruits, walnuts and chocolate pieces. Grate in the orange zest on a very fine grater; try not to use any of the white part so it doesn't taste bitter.

Pour the mixture into a buttered and floured tray and bake in a preheated 365°F (185 °C) oven about 30 min. or to a golden crisp.

Make the syrup by putting all the products listed for it on moderate heat, boil 5-8 min., leave it to cool and take the rinds of the citruses out.

Once the cake is baked, poke its surface with a toothpick in several spots and pour on the cooled syrup. Let it soak in well about 2-3 hours.

Immediately before serving, sprinkle each slice with strawberry syrup.

Enjoy!

Note: The name of the cake comes from the sandy texture it has thanks to the semolina.find similar recipes here
